Pretty cheap day ticket flight from Bristol right now. Seriously considering it.

Do you know the venue? I'm looking at travel plans (to/from airport), and their website is broken, with no venue listed on their FB page. :-/

I don't know the venue. I'll ask them, maybe they don't have it confirmed yet.

Last DCF I attended was on a Gym nearby O'Connell St, so it was quite centric.

About the time, I asked them to have some "space" (there will be no stage, so it will be just a table and a few chairs) around lunchtime (that is, around 13:00) So far it looks like that will be the time, but still is not confirmed. As soon as I have anything else confirmed, I'll update the post.

Ooh.
"Secret grip pull up - flip spike"
Flip Spike = Pivot the secret grip so that the spike points upwards (in a sort of penguin position), and spike it?
Or some kind of throw/whirlwind?

The spike always points upwards, the spin is to make the ken go to the back of the hand without releasing it. However, I am editing the video now :)

That trick was inspired by one happygoat used in a game of ken :)

Hmmm, I shall have a crack at all those today. I'll need to work on that Pinwheel one, I think.

BTW, on the last trick you said "Sara grip or Reverse Sara grip". I assume that should read "tama grip..."?

You're right. In my defense I'll say that I finished editing it quite late yesterday.

For the Pivot Spike, can the string be facing into the palm at the beginning, or must it be on the outside, as in the video?

Either way is fine. I find it easier with the string outside.
